Ex-boyfriend going extra cray? Roommate riding your nerves like a pony? Boss man keeping you down? Ward off the haters with evil eyes! For my gurl Dana here, I added an acid wash denim design and nail art bullion studs so she would look like a force to be reckoned with. Just talk to the hand, and it says, “Bitch, please!”

It’s the first day of summer. Time to hit the beach! I can’t make it out ‘til this weekend, but my nails are so already there. Here are my “Seaside In Aguadilla” nails, the design I reference in the new July Issue of Marie Claire (check me out on page 162!). Except, this sand came straight from the shore The Ramones made famous: Rock, Rock, Rockaway Beach!

And now I’ll let you in on a secret: I got my sand to stick with a nail art must have—Color Club’s Nail Art Sealer. That stuff is a magical bonding topcoat for 3D effects! You should be able to find it at Sally Beauty Supply.

Get Nailed With Miss Pop: How To Get Neon Ombre Nails

I just got my polished paws on Deborah Lippmann’s  Run The World (Girls) summer mini set. With this many hawt neon shades at my fingertips, I just had to take ‘em for a spin with an ombré fade. It’s a look right off the Spring 2012 runway. But the best part is, it’s an easy technique and the perfect way to dip your toes in the nail art pool. So don’t be afraid to dive in! Here’s how you can do up your digits all dayglo …

Must Haves: You’ll need a squishy makeup sponge and three awesomely different shades. I’m all about my new neons, but you can feel free to switch it up. One of my fave combos is turquoise, deep blue, and black. No matter what colors you choose, lay them down lightest to darkest.

This is what Britney Spears’ nails looked like at the recent FOX upfronts. No wonder she was  trying to keep her hands concealed. Those paws are all gnawed and busted.  I’m pretty sure she can afford a manicure. Get that girl to the salon … for our sake if not for hers. How will we watch her on the “X Factor” with hands like that? We volunteer to personally  escort her to the salon. Our treat! [WOW]

Nail Company Brings Caviar To The Masses

Translucent Nails
Would you wear them? Read More »

Nails and nail art are getting a ton of action as of late, from celeb-favorite polishes and embellishments to Obama-backed color collections. I’ll admit that I’m a bit of a fool for nail trends, seeing as they require next to no commitment and generally come at the price of one manicure — I even went for the “statement nail” a few weeks running, accenting my trademark glossy nude with an eye-searing neon on the ring finger. The caviar nail, however, is one trend that I can’t see myself indulging in this time around. No actual fish eggs go into the making of this look, but the name is well-deserved due to the textural, three-dimensional beaded finish the manicure imparts. The style has been much imitated since it first appeared on the Cushnie et Ochs runway last fall, but UK nail polish brand Ciate has taken things a step further by marketing a “Caviar Manicure” kit including both a polish and the beads required for the look. The company offers three color choices — rainbow, white, and black — that will be available stateside at Sephora come April. On second thought, I might be slightly more smitten with the white pearls than I originally reckoned. I could see myself rocking them on one finger, but definitely not all ten. So, should I take this innovative manicure out for a test drive? Would you? [Madame Noire]

Behold, A Birthday Party In A Bottle

Deborah Lippman nail polish doesn’t mess around. It’s not simply shimmery or sparkly, it’s packed full of actual glitter. This particular style, called “Happy Birthday,” contains a rainbow of reflective confetti, and can be layered over other colors to create different looks. Who cares if my actual birthday isn’t until May? I think I’m getting an early present for myself this year. [$18, Nordstrom]

I noted in my Best Dressed slideshow that Adele look flawless at last night’s Grammy Awards, but seriously, even her nails were perfect! The singer had her long nails painted a glimmer-y silver, with the undersides a deep red, just like a pair of Christian Louboutin heels. Awesome! [Styleite]

I’m slightly baffled as to why Sergeant Major of the Army Raymond Chandler would take to Facebook, of all places, for input on changes to the Army grooming standards. Maybe he thought his Facebook pals were the best people to solicit advice on the Army’s consideration of a ban on French manicures, earrings and ponytails? Keep reading »
